Man it's been too long since I read a flame war about Mills. What is this, the 313 mailing list? What year are we in?
there are oodles of DJs who's sound i don't necessarily love, but i am impressed by what they do as DJs...JM just isn't one of them. i find him noisy, choppy and more than a little distracting to be honest.I am surprised you of all people could post that.
Very few can do what he does, you don't have to like the sound to appreciate the innovation.
I don't think anyone is even arguing here, let alone having a 'flame war'. In fact the only one perpetuating that idea is you.Man it's been too long since I read a flame war about Mills. What is this, the 313 mailing list? What year are we in?
preach my brotherJeff Mills is an overrated DJ with an inflated sense of his importance. I say that as someone who owned every Axis/Purpose Maker record in the day and, at one time, believed he was a DJ god. Have you ever listened to the Liquid Room mix? It's horrible. Train wrecks. Terrible programming. This is par for the course for all his sets. He hasn't improved. He's not technically graceful at all. That Purpose Maker video? Please, that's 90% him just flicking his hands around the mixer. Watch it. He's doing nothing! I'm not saying he doesn't deserve respect or he isn't massively influential but he is overrated and he is and always will be a DIVA.
